Illustration | Frida Kahlo

For some reason, I find some illustrations tricky! I have so many illustrations that are not 'finished' and no matter how many times I sit down with them I cant get them to work. I try not to force my  illustrations as I prefer more of a natural flow to them.

This is one of them. I've been playing with this illustration for a few days now and for some reason I am not in 'love' with it. It might be because Frida is such an icon, that adding any sort of colour took away from the pencil illustration itself... I am not sure. However I settled on a bit of geometric watercolour. I have a feeling I might be coming back to this illustration with fresh eyes in a few weeks.
